In this lesson students will learn about jet streams, the global atmospheric circulation model and how they affect the weather around the world. Students will be able to explain the global circulation atmospheric model through the use of either a drawing, a model or a physical display.
Set the context of the unit of work and what students will be covering over the eight lessons. Then, share the learning outcomes for the lesson.
Students will learn about air pressure and how air pressure affects the weather. Following this student will learn about Jet Streams, and how they affect weather, including extreme weather.
Students demonstrate their learning by creating an alternative way to display the global atmospheric model. This could be on balloons or any other way students think of.
